Monica is downcast because she failed one of her assignments, but Tess tells her to buck up because the cavalry's on the way. The two angels watch Russell Greene and his family pass by in a Suburban truck towing an Airstream trailer. After being laid off from his factory job in North Carolina, Russell packed up his wife, two children and mother to head to her home town, Chicory Creek, Kentucky where an old friend, Doc Rogers has promised to give Russell a job. they arrive, however just in time for the doctor's funeral. Erasmus Jones, another family friend, allows the Greene's to pull the trailer in his yard while Russell determines his next move. Complicating matters further is the fact that his brother, Joe skipped town, leaving Nathaniel, a nine-year old son, with Erasmus. Disappointed that the American dream has gone sour for him, Russell takes his wife, Claire's advice and prays for guidance. Unseen, Tess and Monica watch and realize that Russell is their man. The next day, Dinah prompts Erasmus to tell her father about Doc Rogers "unfinished business", the late doctor was visited by two angels who had come to help him save Chicory Creek. She thinks that since Russell doesn't have a job, he can travel to New York and try to persuade a big-city doctor to return to her home town and open up a clinic.

On the bus, Russell sits next to Monica, unaware of her true identity.
